You can't really do anything unless you spend real money to buy their stupid credit packs. No more auction house, no more RP, no daily picker so far. You can do quick matches but what's the point? You can't do anything. You don't get any decent cards unless you pay for them.
2K is charging us for hair cuts, jump shots, signature styles, ect and took away the best way of earning extra VC (daily picker). They also replaced Season mode with Playoffs mode which the idea is good except each game takes about 4 hours so it takes 2 days for each round of the playoffs. I entered playoffs on the 8th and now on the 12th I am only in the 2nd round. Since there is no more RP the only way to reenergize your players is pay for credits or play 15 quick games every time you need to give them energy.
Ill be deleting the app after 2K18 releases if they don't make some serious changes. Playoffs are way too long. It's almost impossible to get decent cards without buying them. I don't know about yall but I don't go to work every day just to waste money on virtual cards for a game that's only good for a year. I would rather pay for the app and have full capabilities like MyNBA2K17 than get an app for free and be able to do nothing useful with it.
Couple Minor Issues, But Major Impact
Overall, cool app, the card earning game used to be a blast for me but isn't something I'm coming back to now with all the other apps on my phone, but I'd still recommend it.
I now only play for the VC, where two problems surface. (Neither of which are the servers, which are now up.) The card draw of 2K17 has been streamlined with the Daily Calendar bonuses and I'm not liking it so far. I got 100 VC my first day. I'm guaranteed to get at least 150 VC in 2K17, and that's on a very bad day, and if my luck was great, than 1,500. I'm assuming it scales though with the times you log in, so I'll pass judgement for now. Just know that going in if that's a game-breaker for you.
Speaking of earning VC, you can still select your PSN, Xbox Live, and Steam accounts to earn it, but as a player transitioning from Xbox One to Switch, I'm very concerned that I can't link my Nintendo account. Please add a fix to this so that you won't lose me along with the other Switch players when they learn of this!
Worse Than Last Year's App
Let's face it: the main reason we all download these apps is so that we can get more of that hard-to-come-by VC. The 2K accompanying apps have been a great resource to earn VC - until now.
Before I delve into why this app is horrible, I'll give it some credit. The layout is much more clean this year in my opinion. The card game you can play online is just as good as ever. You earn more cards and a tiny bit of VC for playing.
However. The daily log-in bonus is where the VC has been at. Last year you could get a MINIMUM of 300 VC and a maximum of 1,500. Huge, right? Worth downloading and logging into your respective online service (PSN, Xbox Live, Steam) just to get, right? Well this year they decided to make it even harder to get this free VC. The MAX you can earn from the daily login bonus (the only amount you can earn) is 100 VC. 100. That's 200% less than last year's MINIMUM. It's already a pain to log into your service every time you log in. But now taking that time is hardly worth the measly 100 VC. What does 100 VC get you in 2K18 anyway? MAYBE a pair of socks?!
I will be deleting this app as it would take me over 2 weeks to earn what the maximum daily bonus would be in 2K17. Absolutely not worth it.
